Best Villas For Dining & Relaxing

By Sally Chapman

Posted: 16 June 2014

Sometimes it’s hard to get everyone sitting down at the same time at home, but on a luxury villa holiday, spending time relaxing together, especially at mealtimes, becomes a large part of your holiday experience. The following villas are great venues for doing this and come with a range of facilities, great locations and kitchens where wonderful creations can be created for your clan. If you’re not planning on doing the cooking yourself, ask Elegant Resorts about villas that come with the services of a Cook or about hiring a private Chef.

Villa 19 Pinhal Velho – Villa Cypress Point
Algarve, Portugal
Those who like to cook can get stuck in and whip up a feast in the plush contemporary kitchen complete with everything you’d expect − oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge-freezer − as well as a juicer, coffee-maker and drinks fridge. There is ample seating in the adjoining dining area − perfect for chatting to family and friends between serving courses. Or you can dine outdoors on the rooftop terrace which also has a gas barbecue. Afterwards, why not sip drinks by the pool, or maybe recline on the Lay-Z-Boy seats in the cinema room or play a game of pool in the games room? For full details about this villa, click here.

Villa El Cano
Costa del Sol, Spain
There is plenty here to help you to relax, from the gymnasium, sauna and hot tub to the two swimming pools and lovely landscaped gardens that are the perfect place to savour evening aperitifs and barbecued delights. In addition, guests can use the spa facilities at Ritz-Carlton Villa Padierna, just three-hundred metres away, or play a round of golf at one of the courses nearby. And, for those looking for some glamour, the towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus are in easy reach. For full details about this villa, click here.

Villa Rosa
Puerto Andraitx, Mallorca
Families will love this villa; each bedroom has access to either the upper or lower pool terraces and the elliptical pool is perfect for swimming. Rosie, the Housekeeper and Cook, and her husband Tisoy will take perfect care of you. An assortment of meals and refreshments can be cooked for you so that you don’t have to lift a finger. Then there are the breathtaking panoramic views that instil a sense of calm every time you gaze at them. If guests wish to relax off-site there is a golf course and beaches, including two beaches at Sant Elm and Camp de Mar which are ideal for children, approximately fifteen minutes’ drive away.

Fustic House
St Lucy, Barbados
A villa sure to meet the expectations of the most discerning of guests, Fustic House is full of features to make your stay a real chill out. There is a games room in the Plantation Wing, croquet to play outdoors, a lagoon-style pool in the gorgeous private garden and a sandy, quiet beach just a five-minute walk away. Meanwhile, your staff of twelve is on-hand to cater to your every whim from five-star culinary treats from the Executive Chef and Cook to any special requests attended to by your Butler. Dinnertime can be a real occasion in the setting of the stunning dining room featuring a fireplace and feature stone hearth. For full details about this villa, click here.
